A military colleague of Detective Amaro's wife reports his 14-year-old daughter missing. The detectives find the girl working as a prostitute under a possessive pimp. They quickly set up a sting operation to entrap Johns on rape charges with a minor, and arrest aging pro quarterback Jake Stanton. Detective Benson and ADA Cabot seek to make an example out of the football legend, but the case is thrown into chaos with the return of defense attorney Bayard Ellis, who questions Stanton's mental capacity after years of injuries on the field.

Did You Know?


Andre Braugher stars as defense lawyer Bayard Ellis. Braugher also played Det. Frank Pembleton on "Homicide: Life on the Streets" with Richard Belzer, who played Munch on that show and on SVU. For this storyline, Munch's character is absent to avoid the potential awkwardness of Braugher being a different character. See more »


ADA Cabot questions Jake Stanton, then rests her case. Stanton's lawyer then begins cross-examination. Cabot could not have called Stanton as a witness against himself so this sequence of events is legally impossible. See more »


Maria Grazie: [to Amaro] I hate when you do this.
Detective Nick Amaro: What's that?
Maria Grazie: I think we're having a conversation. Turns out, you're interrogating me.

Treat is a treat
21 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

A somewhat mild criminal episode given the past, usual fare of SVU, this one shows off the genuine acting abilities of the ensemble and guest performers, the most prominent of whom are Treat Williams as Jake Stanton and Andre Braugher as his attorney Bayard Ellis. Too, the camera work is quite splendid, adding dramatic panache to a particularly fine script.

The episode covers so much ground - teenage prostitution and early-onset-athlete dementia - without any maudlin overtones or polemic. Truth is, this would have made for a fine movie; it is, in my humble estimation, the best episode of the SVU series.
